Scripture on Sunday- Hope

And what a special Sunday it is! At my house, we are gearing our hearts, minds, and activities towards celebrating the birth of Christ and all that means for us! We celebrated the first Sunday of Advent by lighting a candle to remind us of the hope we find in Christ. We discussed Titus 1:2 and how the promise has helped generation after generation of believers get through all of the tough times this world has to offer.

Titus 1:2 is a scripture that quickly brings us to the real meaning of Christmas. Eternal life. Jesus brings us the gift of hope because no matter how difficult life is if we have Jesus as our Savior, we know that we look forward to a perfect eternal future in Heaven.

My family has a tradition where we always ring bells for the Salvation Army the day after Thanksgiving. It is a great reminder to me of what the season is really about showing love to others because God showed his unfailing love for us when he sent his Son (John 3:16.)

Here’s a poster if you would like to print it out and study along with me-

Please share with me things your family does to celebrate in the comments!

Until next time,
